                  This act modifies provisions related to the State System of Public Education by eliminating
                  certain categorical spending programs and mandates on school districts. This act repeals
                  provisions regarding the distribution and expenditure of educational technology monies for
                  use by school districts and colleges of education, including matching funds requirements.
                  This act eliminates the Technology Initiative Project Office and the requirement imposed
                  upon school districts and colleges of education to prepare an educational technology plan.
                  This act eliminates the Utah Educational Network (UEN's) responsibility to coordinate
                  certain educational technology programs. This act repeals the duty of the State Board of
                  Education to approve career ladder plans but directs the board to require school districts
                  to report how career ladder monies are spent. This act eliminates certain duties of the State
                  Board of Education and superintendent of public instruction regarding the planning, design,
                  and construction of school buildings. This act eliminates a program that provides state
                  funds to match private funds raised by school districts to enhance educational excellence, a
                  developmental program for the implementation of an extended school year, the Schools for
                  the 21st Century Program, and the School Nursing Services Incentive Program. This act
                  eliminates requirements applicable to the funding and establishment of alternative middle
                  schools. This act eliminates the requirement that each local school board implement a
                  program that provides district employees an opportunity to make anonymous suggestions
                  to the board. This act makes technical corrections. This act takes effect on July 1, 2002.
